Research project

The Malês Revolt and its media developments:  a study on narration and South Global conflicts
This project approaches two different sets of problems: i) one of anthropological/cultural nature, aimed at understanding the territory and its configuration upon power relations and dynamics; and ii) one of communicational/relational nature, aimed at problematising Journalism through the perspective of language, considering it as part of a broader discursive dimension; one of the likely instances of enunciation  of present history in a world marked by technological advance. The first set  is intended to trace the route between the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, and Lagos, Nigeria, whose “conflict matrix” is the Malês Revolt, that happened in Brazil in the early 19th century. Pervaded by the tragic experience of slavery in Brazil,  these three territories are approached through a geopolitical perspective, and their narrative and media practises must cooperate toward the configuration process of a narrative territoriality. By considering the Valongo Wharf, Rio de Janeiro, as the epicentre of this expansion process,  this research is articulated by the idea of territory as inhabited space configured by different technologies, means of production,  objects, and subjects that constantly collide and reinvent distinct modes of existence. The second set of problems aims at criticising Journalism, since it is supposed that, as an instance of enunciation,  it is a language problem. Through this perspective, the hypothesis articulated here is that, concerning the conflicts of political and cultural nature, the reflexion on journalism depends on geopolitical contexts that are permeated by logics of power both inscribed in and producers of events. By problematising the framing development process within the contemporary media landscape, this project reflects on the regime of subjectivities guided by post-colonialist and Global South theories, since its aim is also reflecting on the role played by media in the inscription process of the power relations produced by colonialist projects.
